Starting October 1, over one crore BSNL landline broadband users will be able to surf the Internet at a minimum speed of 2 megabits per second (2Mbps), at no extra cost.

At present, the company offers minimum broadband speed of 512 Kbps.

“We have increased the internet speed four times...we have ensured 2 Mbps is available at last mile, which is the customer premises starting October 1,” BSNL CMD Anupam Shrivastava said on Monday.

The move, which could also trigger a drop in data speed tariffs of private telecom operators, is a part of BSNL’s revival plan and comes after the recently announced facilities such as free roaming and free night calling on landlines for its users.
